In the latest NFL rumors, the Dallas Cowboys are making some roster moves, particularly at the quarterback position. Before fans get too excited, Dak Prescott isn't going anywhere. Instead, the team signed another backup quarterback to the roster and cut another from it. Here's the latest on the quarterbacks the team has moved in the last several days ahead of the 2017 NFL season.

Dak Prescott still on board

With the retirement of Tony Romo, it has officially signaled the emerged of Dak Prescott as the team's starter and future franchise star.

Prescott, along with rookie running back, Ezekiel Elliott, helped to lead this team to the best record in the NFC, but the team failed to make it past the Green Bay Packers in the NFL Playoffs. However, the Cowboys appear to be headed in the right direction for the future with their corps of talented young stars.

Ezekiel Elliott is coming off of a rookie season in which he led the NFL in total rushing yards with 1,631 total.

Prescott had 3,667 total passing yards which had him ranked at No. 19 in the league, amongst the best of the best. He also threw 23 touchdowns with just four interceptions all season for a stellar start to his career. The Cowboys finished at 13-3 for the season.

The Dallas Cowboys will hope for more of the same from Prescott and Elliott in the coming NFL season. In particular, they'll hope for an injury-free sophomore season and no slumps.

Quarterback moves

The team already has one backup on their roster in Kellen Moore. Just within the past week, the team signed quarterback Zac Dysert out of Miami, Ohio, a former seventh-round pick back in the 2013 NFL Draft. In order to make room for Desert, they cut quarterback Austin Appleby from the roster.

Dysert has been a third-string quarterback with several NFL teams, including the Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins.

However, he has yet to make an appearance in an NFL game. He'll serve as a potential backup should Dak Prescott's backup go down. In order to have that role, he'll need to prove he belongs on the roster first.

So far, though, it seems that this Dallas Cowboys franchise could be headed for future success thanks to their draft gems in Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott. Prescott could possibly find some new targets over the coming season with draft picks Ryan Switzer from North Carolina and Noah Brown out of Ohio State, so fans will be waiting to see if these two young wide receivers pay dividends.
